    This is book four of the Jane Hawk series. I’m normally one to start at the beginning of a series in anticipation of getting the most out of it. But truly, with this series, each book leans heavily on the last. I can’t imagine reading this series out of order.Jane Hawk has been on the run (for her life) from the Arcadians. A powerful group who pose a threat to the country and more importantly, to humanity. With the use of nanotechnology this ...

    I’m gonna start with a secret. For long time readers there is some exquisite satisfaction to be found in The Forbidden Door. No, to casual readers of this review-I did not mean porn type. To interested readers of this review, the book could be read as a standalone if you like heart racing action; but why not quadruple your pleasure and read all of the Jane Hawk books?It is a bit unwieldy to keep referring to the bad guy elites as the techno Arc...

    The Jane Hawk novels seem to be following the pattern set by the Odd Thomas series: first book, excellent; second book, terrible; third book, surprisingly great; fourth book, an overlong slog.I’m beginning to notice a pattern in the Jane Hawk novels, too: the ones padded out with chapter upon chapter decidedly not focused on Hawk tend to be weak. For long stretches of time, The Forbidden Door is not about Hawk at all, or even her son, but rando...

    This series gets more and more intense! This is the fourth book in the Jane Hawk series and they are all good. Jane is a hero - a character to love and respect and root for. In this episode her son is in grave danger and she must rescue him before the Techno-Arcadians get him. This is no easy task and she has to make quick decisions, obtain assistance from people she trusts, and hope for the best. The tension builds edge-of-your-seat style. There...

    This has become for me a seriously addicting series. Although it is what might be considered a long book, the pages fly by and one is totally immersed in Jane Hawk's quest to undo evil and protect her beloved son, Travis.In this book, the fourth of the series, Jane is once again battling the evil members of the Arcadian group who through the ability of nanotechnology are able to infiltrate one's brain literally doing away with free will and putti...

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank Random House and the author.This is the fourth book of the Jane Hawk series. Even though this is the fourth book it can be read as a stand alone novel. At the end of the third novel Jane learned that her son might be in trouble. This book tells of Jane's journey to get to her son and rescue him.This series by Dean Koontz has been really enjoyable even ...

    If it's possible to have a love-hate relationship with a book, this is it. On the one hand, the writing is almost exquisite, virtually ensuring my reluctance to put it down. Conversely, wading through page after page hoping that yet another important character won't bite the dust - probably in a most horrific way - is borderline unbearable. Characters I adore; other characters so loathesome that I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemies.Oh, what a...

    Koontzland Group Read - September/October 2018 I was lucky with the Koontzland group given me ARC copy.....Jane Hawk continues to be a beautiful heroine, x-FBI admired with courage & strong to defeat any problem thrown her way. She lives thru memories of her husband's suicide, Lt.Col. Nick Hawk, that were disturbing her mind & life.Angel & Clare (Nick's parents) enter the story to protect Travis, her 5 year old son, from the Jane & "villians" ch...

    Andrew bought this for me. Picked it up and read it in two days. Once I start a Koontz book, I just can't stop. The man knows what he's doing!

    With this 4th installment in the Jane Hawk series, protagonist Jane has solidified as my favorite character ever of Dean Koontz, and I'm pretty sure I've read most of his books. Once again, I inhaled this book and couldn't stop reading tonight until I finished. And yes, it's about 1:30 am. The action never seems to let up as Jane rushes to get her son back before he can be captured by the evil Techno Arcadians after his guardians are killed. A ne...

    I think this was the best of the series so far. It was a little different from the others as it focused on Jane trying to rescue her son instead of going after the Arcadians. A few of our favorite characters make an appearance and we meet some new people that do not mess around. I love the way some of the regular people band together in different situations and it was good to see the Arcadians looking less indomitable at times. The story had some...

    This is the fourth book in the exciting Jane Hawk series. Previously in the series, former FBI top agent Jane Hawk's husband was believed to have committed suicide. Jane did not believe the official FBI story and investigated on her own. She has discovered American citizens are being injected with nano-technology enabling the helpless victims to be downloaded with commands. To protect Travis, her small five year old, from danger Jane has secreted...

    As usual, Mr. Koontz is very wordy! It took me around 50 pages or so to get over my exasperation with him. But, I ended up truly loving this book. The characters are all indeed characters. Lovable, funny, intelligent and caring. I even enjoyed the bad guys, mostly. The nihilist was an odd duck. Very odd. The Princeton hillbilly is definitely one of my favorite bad guys ever. I was never rooting for him, but he sure made me laugh! This book didn't...

    Koontz has created a world where a dark shadowy group called Techno Arcadians, has a secret plan to control society and is going about implementing this plan by infiltrating Homeland Security, the FBI, and other institutions. More importantly, they are injecting people with a control mechanism that can be enacted at any time and makes people mindless tools or savage monsters doing the bidding of the secret society. Few people know what’s really...

    I am giving this one 3.5 out of 5 stars. I am enjoying the series as a whole but there were some parts of the book that were a little long and and not as intense. This book starts off where The Crooked Staircase left off. There is a lot going on in this book and jumping back and forth between different characters and places. I don’t think we get to see as much of Jane Hawk in this book as the others. The parts with the evil Arcadians seem to ta...

    *A copy of this novel was received through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*This was an excellent installment in the Jane Hawk series. It picks up right where the previous book left off, with Jane racing against the clock, fighting the evil that threatens to annihilate everything she loves. There are wonderfully good characters in this story and wonderfully bad ones. We get to see a lot more of the bad ones in this portion of the story...

    Jane Hawk is back! I was eagerly awaiting this latest installment of this spy thriller series involving kick-ass rogue special agent Jane Hawk. Although it felt a bit drawn out in parts - too much filler and I skimmed, there was plenty of suspense, evil villains, and high-tech gadgetry to keep me engrossed. Jane is a character I cheer for at every turn and look forward to the next book in the series.

    While I love Jane Hawk, the last book in this series only got 3 stars from me. I felt a little like Koontz had spent a large portion of the book teasing something that never panned out for the reader.Well, I’m happy to say that with The Forbidden Door, Koontz is back on track and Jane is Butt-Kickingly Fabulous!Our story line is tight, tense, and INTENSE. I was on tenterhooks, so concerned about my favorite characters! And Koontz does the reade...

    Predictable. Koontz can't write a clunker, but its time to bring this series to a close.

    If you like detailed descriptions of weapons, tactics, and specialized soldiers… If you like multiple points of view: the protagonist, the deadly terrorists, and the innocents… If you like fast-paced action, a likable hero, and the takedown of government infiltration… This series is for you.For my full review: https://paulspicks.blog/2018/08/29/th...For all my reviews: https://paulspicks.blog

    I received this book courtesy of Random House/Bantam and the Koontzland Group for the purpose of a fair review.Overview: Jane is in an even bigger mess than she feared. The Techno-Arcadians seem to have somehow weaseled out just who was taking care of Travis. Jane’s fight to bring the Arcadians down is going to have to take a back seat for a little while she gets to the last precious gift she has left. Dislikes: The Arcadians’ lack of empathy...

    The fourth book in the Jane Hawk series seems a little different in its focus: we learn more about the individual members in the teams who carry out the directives of the 'visionaries' conducting the secret Techno Arcadian revolution. One such person is Egon Gottfrey who believes that 'the Techno Arcadians will change the world. They will pacify contentious humanity, end poverty, create Utopia through technology.' He and his team have been instru...
